Aqua Narrowboats Luxury Hire Boats Relocated to Barton Turns Marina
For directions to our Narrowboat Hire and Holiday Base please see our Contact Us page.
Aqua Narrowboats are thrilled to announce that the Hire Fleet has now been relocated to Barton Turns Marina on the Trent and Mersey Canal (just outside Burton-on-Trent).
Aqua Narrowboats will continue to provide the same high level of service but the marinas position, closer to the heart of the Midlands canal network, will enable our customers much quicker access to Fradley Junctionallowing a whole day of extra holiday cruising on the main system whilst still retaining our position on the Leicester Ring. Please see our Canal Routes page for more information about canal routes and planning your canal boat trip.
Barton Turns Marina is another prestigious site with the same feel as Mercia Marina offering a range of shops, cafes and even small cinema! You can stop for breakfast at The Apple Tree Tearoom before embarking on your narrow boat adventure or visit the award winning Gallery Three which offers a diverse mix of contemporary Fine Art. For more information about the facilities please visit the Barton Turns Marina website.
Please see our Book Online page to book your luxury narrowboat holiday online, alternatively you can contact the office on 01283 701041 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are continuing to take bookings as normal for our 2021 hire boat season – at the moment these are still only being taken online. Presently we are still not taking short break bookings, but will honour those already booked with us.
Please Note: Unfortunately due to social distancing measures we are still unable to accept bookings from novices for the 2021 season. All customers will be assessed and must have had previous experience of handling a narrowboat and the working of locks – by booking you are agreeing to these conditions.
Bedding Update: Please be aware that we are once again providing duvets, bedding and towels for hirers however politely request that you provide your own pillows and pillow cases.
The main hirer will need to wear a facemask whilst signing the necessary handover forms.
We will of course review all our decisions regarding novices, bedding and short break bookings at the start of the 2021 hire boat season, and again during the season as and when necessary. For the continued protection of our customers, and in addition to our normal strict cleaning regimes, we shall carry on applying a Microbe Shield at intervals on all hire boats during the course of 2021 season.
